There is no freedom without dignity and there is no freedom without credibility stressed Mateusz Morawiecki. As he explained, honouring his word translated into the fact that the life of Polish families is more decent. More decent is work and pay, more decent is the state of public finances, more decent is our historical and international policy he explained.

As he said, ‘Family 500+’ Programme has done a lot of good for the elimination of poverty, improvement of the economy and equal opportunities for millions of Polish families. Our new economic model is also highly appreciated. According to OECD, in 2019 and 2020, Poland will be the leader in terms of economic growth stressed Prime Minister. We have reduced bureaucracy and the number of fiscal inspections he added.

Successes mentioned by the head of the government include, among others, the increase in healthcare expenditures from PLN 70 to PLN 106 billion and the introduction of ‘Bez PIT dla Młodych’ Programme (zero income tax for young people), thanks to which young employees under the age of 26 do not pay income tax. Mateusz Morawiecki also emphasised that in local governments there was an increase of PLN 20 billion due to PIT and CIT liabilities.

Referring to the turnout in the last parliamentary elections, Prime Minister noted that it was the first time that Poles believed to such a large extent that state support was possible and meaningful.

We have done a lot to make Poland better. We are in the relay, we want to go further towards better and more equitable Poland - finished Prime Minister.

Afterwards, he went to the ceremony of the President's acceptance of the resignation of the Council of Ministers. We are about to end our four-year term of office. Among so many challenges, we have managed to achieve so much in such a short time said Mateusz Morawiecki.

The ninth term Sejm was elected in the elections on 13 October 2019. Six electoral committees introduced their representatives to the Sejm.
